A combination of lime juice and sunlight can damage your DNA
Today’s Video of the Day from the American Chemical Society describes how a combination of lime juice and sunlight actually damage your DNA.
Compounds from lime juice called psoralens wedge their way into the DNA in a process called intercalation. On its own, intercalation has no adverse effects.
However exposure to radiation in sunlight activates the psoralens, ultimately causing cells to basically self-destruct.
